“Sometimes a minor change in your behavior isn’t enough to get the results you want. That’s when you need to make a complete U-turn.” Michele Weiner-Davis, author of Keeping Love Alive.
1. What is bothering you? What’s the problem?
2. Ask yourself how you have been handling the problem up until now?
3. What could I do that is the complete opposite of how I typically handle the problem?
After this Michele suggests taking action. We agree wholeheartedly and in our Madly In Love Forever Coaching we go as far as to suggest that ” nothing will change in your relationship until you step out in faith and take action.”
Find a support system to help you with this new action. Watch what happens to your partner’s behavior in response to your change. It only takes one of you to break the pattern.
Good luck, let us know how you do.
